Practice: Their 24-hour ECC Hospital is a bustling, buzzing hub that treats both its own cases and those from nearby group clinics, too. Here, you’ll have access to brilliant facilities, limitless learning opportunities, and receive a heck lot of support from a spirited and supportive team.

Team: This is a close-knit, multi-talented bunch, with loads of specialisations that enable them to work on difficult and complex cases from start to finish.

  • They have a network of highly skilled and experienced surgeons across the organisation to support your ongoing training and development.

Hours: The role will offer a 50% bias towards surgical shifts as part of a four-day working week.
